AHA Press Release: New Report Outlines Impact of Potential ACA Repeal on Hospitals and Health Systems
December 12, 2016
The American Hospital Association (AHA) and the Federation of American Hospitals (FAH) commissioned a report, prepared by the health care economics firm Dobson | DaVanzo, highlighting the impact a potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would have on hospitals and health systems as they strive to care for their communities.
The report finds that, under the most recent repeal without replacement bill, H.R. 3762, hospitals would face a net negative impact of $165.8 billion from 2018-2026 after accounting for the restoration of the Medicaid DSH cuts that H.R. 3762 contemplates. It also found that hospitals would suffer a loss of $289.5 billion in Medicare inflation updates if the payment reductions in the ACA are not restored. Finally, the study authors calculate that the impact of retaining the Medicare and Medicaid DSH reductions would amount to $102.9 billion.
